MSA worked with the Wisconsin Rapids to complete a number of tasks required to complete the City's WPDES permit application.

MSA prepared a Stormwater Quality Master Plan for Wisconsin Rapids and developed the materials required to complete the City’s NR216 (WPDES) permit application. Major tasks included:
  • Preparation of city-wide stormwater quantity and quality models - Our team created WinSLAMM water quality models to identify limitations in the City’s stormwater management system. Our models placed special emphasis on meeting water quality targets for pollutant discharges identified under the WPDES program. Our team identified and analyzed potential BMP locations to determine their total suspended solids (TSS) removal efficiency. We prepared site concept designs and cost estimates for all BMPs recommended to the City.
  • Preparation of a stormwater pollution prevention plan, per NPDES requirements - Our experts tailored Wisconsin Rapids’ stormwater pollution prevention plan to meet the specific needs of the City as they relate to the requirements of the City’s permit.
  • Preparation of Erosion Control, Stormwater Management and Illicit Discharge Ordinances - MSA drafted all three ordinances, which were reviewed by the City Attorney and submitted to City council for adoption.
  • Storm Sewer System Mapping - Our team created a digital storm sewer system map in ArcGIS from the City’s existing paper maps. We formatted the storm sewer map to meet the requirements of Section 2.8 of the City’s WPDES permit.
  • Stormwater Utility - MSA developed a stormwater utility and stormwater utility ordinance for the City.
